Summer is coming and as exciting as warm weather sounds, it also makes me cringe.

There's something about being able to hide behind jeans and sweatshirts that is pretty comforting.

And as amazing as the spring air feels right now, my skin (aka legs especially) are not ready for the warmer weather.

So before summer is officially here and I'm forced to show my lily whiteness, I am doing a little prepping.

This includes using these simple grapefruit options I'm sharing today.

I'm sure you've probably heard that grapefruit is great for cellulite.

The easiest way to take advantage of these benefits is with Grapefruit Essential Oil.

At least that's my opinion. 🙂 Not only that, it is one of the most affordable essential oils so I am ok with slathering it all over my body.

3 Grapefruit Super Skin Care Recipes | SimplePureBeauty.com

1. Grapefruit Sugar Scrub

A great place to start preparing for summer is exfoliating. This simple recipe will help remove dead skin cells and increase circulation to those trouble areas.

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients.
  2. Place a small amount in the palm of your hand and massage over desired area.
  3. Rinse well.

2. Grapefruit Body/Massage Oil

This is great to use on those trouble areas as well. Simply massage onto any area that could use a little tightening up. 🙂

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Combine both ingredients.
  2. Place a small amount in the palm of your hand and massage over desired area.
  3. Do not rinse.
  4. Can be placed in a large-roll on bottle for easy application

Don't want to mess with making your own? I love this Cel-Lite Magic Massage Oil.

3. Grapefruit Cream

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 30 drops grapefruit essential oil

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients.
  2. Place a small amount in the palm of your hand and massage over desired area.
  3. Mixture can also be whipped to create a lighter body butter texture

Phototoxicity:

Some citrus oils are photo-toxic and should be avoided when exposure to the sun is unavoidable.

Grapefruit can cause photo-sensitivity when used at a dilution over 4%. Read more here.

These recipes are all within the safe range, so you should be ok if you have to be in the sun.

Although I wouldn't use these recipes and lay out in the sun for long periods of time or add any more than the recommended drops of grapefruit essential oil.

That's it my friend. 3 easy and affordable ways to get your skin summer ready!
